Thread: What to buy for a puppys arrival

  1. Default

    Before I had Callix, I bought him bed, anti-tick shampoo, blow drier, comb, leash, dog food, treats, toys, nail cutter, toothbrush and toothpaste.
    Border Collies are like potato chips, you really can't have just oneā€¦

    Thanks everyone for the wonderful ideas. We are taking the pup a blanket at the 5 week visit (so the smell of the litter will be on it) and a couple of toys (I think a tug toy and a chew toy?)

    I dare say many of the kids toys will be recycled (intentionally and otherwise lol) I am hoping the breeder can give us the information on the food, worming etc at the 5 week visit so I can be prepared.

    Elvis is definately the boy name. I think Coco or Zoe is what it has been narrowed down to for a girl there are 3 girls and one boy in the litter.

    Only 4 weeks til we meet them don't know who is more excited me or the kids

    Oh, I love Coco too! I wish I had called our dog that. I find 'ee' sounds harder when you need to call them from a difference, but that may just be me.

    Though I do know some dogs who have been given old slippers for toys and still never touch the owner's new slippers or shoes. Which I find almost unbelievable because we are still hiding all shoes and slippers from our dog after all this time! I have never dared to calculate how much money her shoe fetish has cost us over the months...
